On Supremacy Of Constitution (Editorial July 2015)


A constitution is a body of fundamental principles or established precedents according to which a state is acknowledged to be governed. It is a sacrosanct document each and every provision of which must be faithfully and meticulously followed by all citizens of the state. On the one hand, it defines the status and the role of state’s premier organs, including the executive, the legislature and the judiciary, and enumerates the basic obligations of the State towards the citizens and vice versa on the other. Therefore, both the rulers and the ruled must hold the constitution supreme and abide by it because it’s the only way to put a country on the path that leads to a better political and socioeconomic order.

From the slums of Kenya and refugee camps of Lebanon to the sugar plantations of the Dominican Republic and the far reaches of Myanmar, men, women and children across the world have found themselves living without citizenship rights. Rejected by their countries of birth and unwelcome everywhere else, they are called by international rights organizations as “stateless.” Thousands of stateless Rohingya Muslims, in order to escape the state-sponsored persecution in Myanmar, are stranded at sea, caught between a home country that denies them citizenship rights and a regional neighbourhood seemingly indifferent to their suffering.

Population of Pakistan

Population of Pakistan by M Atif Sheikh

The difference of human development standards between developed and developing countries, makes life luxurious at some places but miserable at some. And that is just because of not acting upon the ages-old proverb “cut your coat according to your cloth,” meaning that population growth should be directly related to resources. And many developed countries have actually proven it as in these countries there has been an increase of 55% in their population during the last 65 years which surged from 813 million in 1950 to reach 1259 million in 2015. On the contrary, in developing countries, population has swelled by 254% to reach 6065 million in 2015 from 1713 million during these 65 years.
